This version of Zontar is based on this version. The color in the picture was nicer but the sound was very low.
Picture is slightly better.
The soundtrack has been remastered with higher volume levels, parametric EQ to help with any high-end cracking, bass boost to the low end, and some de-noising and de-crackling. It's not perfect but it's much better. Combined with the enhanced color it makes for a more enjoyable cheesy film experience.
The picture has been slightly enhanced but not much. The only thing missing is possible frame stabilization.
IMDb Summary: A misguided scientist enables an alien from Venus named Zontar to come to Earth in order to help solve man's problems. However, Zontar has other ideas, like disabling the power supply of the entire world and taking possession of important officials with mind control devices.

Watch the original!
This is an almost word-for-word remake of the 1956 classic "It Conquered the World," a much better movie, primarily due to having Lee Van Cleef and Peter Graves in the main roles.

Beautiful restoration on ZONTAR. I bounced it to DVD and sent my other versions to the dumpster. I kept my Sci-Fi 50 pack as an original reference. Watched this as a teen in 1968 on Chiller Theatre on a old B&W TV with rabit ears. Great job! Looking forward to your next restore. Terrible movie, but the restore made it mucho watchable! Many thanks

Restored Zontar-- who ever expected to see those two words together?
Thanks to both of you, this is great! All we need now is "Zontar--the Director's Cut" and life will be complete ;-)
